I could get away from a/c care, but clearly, the electric heat pump had other plans
I could swear I had dislocated my hip joint when I woke up. Going out in our early twenties was a breeze. We could go out, and the following day we would attend our classes, go to work in the evening, catch a few hrs of sleep and be functional the next day. However, things are very different in my thirties. One Friday night out, and I will pay for it the whole weekend. Last Friday, I went out with my friends, and I could barely get out of bed on Saturday. The cold woke me up, so I dragged myself to the digital thermostat. I did not understand why the HVAC system had switched off, and when I switched it on again, it switched off after a few minutes. I just put on a sweater, added an extra duvet, and continued sleeping. I called the commercial air conditioning dealer at around noon on Saturday. After inspecting the a/c setup, the air conditioning technician informed me that I had neglected to do maintenance and quality AC service, which could have easily prevented the breakdown and saved me the heating repair cost. It was true that I had neglected the electric heat pump, but I always ensured that I checked the ductwork every once in a while for leaks. I only called the air conditioning company for repairs, AC filters, and other such things. I could get away from a/c care, but clearly, the electric heat pump had other plans. The air conditioning professional told me that the HEPA filter was wrong and was not doing anything to help with air quality. Even in my hangover state, I could not admit it was my doing.
